hi shadowisadog.

 

thanks for you suggestion.

 

i tried that suggestions.  i also import pygame._view to the walker.py file and pygame2exe.py, but i having trouble including image files.

 

in the following file (walker.py), i load a few png and gif files.  after i converted it and double clicked the walker.exe, the result is a walker.exe.log file which i include below follow by walker.py:

 

 

bground = pygame.image.load(r'gameimages\background.png')
front_standing = pygame.image.load(r'gameimages\crono_front.gif')
back_standing = pygame.image.load(r'gameimages\crono_back.gif')
left_standing = pygame.image.load(r'gameimages\crono_left.gif')
 
the walker.exe.log have this to say, but i do have gameimages dir containing the files above:
 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "walker.py", line 38, in <module>
pygame.error: Couldn't open gameimages\background.png
 

to be sure, i double clicked the walker.py in window explore, it ran perfectly.
